*Please note that the two normally open (N/O) are described when the switch and actuator are apart. The normally open will close when the actuator is brought within operating distance of the switch.
The Mechan MS6 is suitable for use in new and existing machine installations. If you're looking to replace an existing Allen Bradley / Guardmaster FRS safety switch that has been damaged or failed, the MS6 can be used to replace it.
It has the same contact configuration, it's the same physical size and has the same fixing centres. More importantly it is offers a more cost effective solution.
